Pronounced ‘Tes-Zon’, this 100% agave tequila is named after ‘Tezontle’, the volcanic stone from which tahona wheels are made. Coincidently and rather fittingly, the name also means ‘with intensity’ in Spanish. The hand-blown and finished bottle originally had pewter metal plates on each side embossed with four symbols that represent Teźon’s production process: an agave plant, fire (symbolising the slow roasting), a tahona stone and the ‘spirit’ of Teźon. The bottle is finished with a black resin stopper, again representing the tahona stone used in this Tequilas production.
Olmeca Tezón launched in the U.S. in August 2005 and in the UK the following March.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 31/03/2013
Fresh and salty with a hint of ginger spice.
Clean with creamy mouth feel, white pepper and salt spiciness with subtle hints of lime zest, herbs (mint, basil) and grass.
Long finish is also very clean with lasting pepper spice. This spicy tequila has pronounced peppery notes with subtle agave character present throughout.
